Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood ‘The Da Vinci Disappearance’ DLC announced

A new downloadable expansion for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood will release in March. Titled The Da Vinci Disappearance, it’ll add both new single-player and multiplayer content.

The new single-player content takes place in the form of a rescue mission. Leonardo Da Vinci, famous renaissance painter and Ezio’s oldest friend, is captured by an underground cult known as the Hermeticists. To save Leonardo, Ezio must recover stolen paintings in order to determine his location. Ubisoft promises “two new gameplay features” will be introduced in the expansion.

The multiplayer addition is boasted as the “biggest expansion yet,” including one new map, four new characters, and two new game modes. The new map, called Alhambra, is set in the lush environment of Spain’s Albaicin of Granada and provides “multileveled indoor and outdoor areas perfect for predators to lurk in the dense crowd for unsuspecting targets.” The four new characters are: Dama Rossa, the Knight, the Marquis and the Pariah. The first new game mode, Escort, has two teams of four players protecting a VIP target or assassinating the other team’s VIP. The second mode, Assassinate, pits six to eight players against each other in deathmatch-style ten-minute round.

The content’s out early March on PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE for $9.99 (800 Microsoft Points). Check out screenshots of the DLC at the gallery. A teaser trailer can be viewed below.
